An inspiring and excellent reference book on formal gardens
on 28 November 2000
A well illustrated and good reference to the art of topiary and training plants. Leaning towards traditional topiary with plants such as yew and boxwood. Topiary with these plants is not executed overnight.
A reasonable section on false topiary (making living sculptures with vigourous growing ivies)is described. Overall an excellent coffee table book to browse for ideas, particulary at the garden planning stage.
